comment LaTeX complaining about illegal parameter number
@A.Ellett Well the 'rules' are laid out in the expl3 concepts guide. The bottom line is TeX does not have a namespace system (and even if it did you'd still need to manage the module names). The formalised approach in expl3 is pretty much the same as good practice for LaTeX2e packages, where many packages use \foo@... in names. If you want more on this, probably best to ask on in chat or on LaTeX-L as it's likely to be a discussion.

@DavidCarlisle Perhaps we need a canonical question on this (tex-core?) to link to

comment LaTeX complaining about illegal parameter number
@A.Ellett No, it's entirely how TeX works: each time you nest a level of definitions, you have to double up each #.

comment LaTeX complaining about illegal parameter number
Not related to the issue at hand, but expl3 code should always be set up in a defined namespace. So here you might have \showbaseconv_... as the function prefix, and therefore \l_showbaseconv_... for a local variable, etc.
